Dumb and Dumber is great. Still. May be even better now seeing how rare it is that Jeff Daniels does lighter fare. The guy is amazing (yes, even on The Newsroom) and most definitely the MVP of the movie.
There have long been rumors of an actual sequel to the movie. Every time the Brothers Farrelly are interviewed it’s a hot topic. The less said about the prequel the better. It seemed to be a dead issue when Jim Carrey seemingly walked off the movie. And then not.
Now it seems to really be happening. And it has a plot. Because one thing that people really need to know is if the plot is good. Per Digital Spy from a Farrelly mouth:
“I can tell you that there is no growth out of either one of them and it’s 20 years later. What is funny about the original is that they’re grown men who are complete losers and when the studio came to us about a sequel, we were like, ‘Loads of kids are losers and they’re dumb.’ We didn’t see any value in the sequel so we backed out of it, but now these guys are in regular life and they’re still basically children at heart.
“The story revolves around the fact that one of them may have sired a child. They want to go and find the child because he’s having a kidney problem and he wants to ask him for one of his kidneys.”
Unless Seann William Scott plays the child.
